SAVED 96% (89%) @ PUBLIX

I had a really amazing trip to Publix this week, though it was partly because of a mistake on their part. As usual, there wasn't much that I needed, but the deals that I got were great. Here is what I bought:

1 pint blueberries (FREE)
1 pint blackberries (FREE)
12 Trays Whiskas (FREE)
4 Betty Crocker Potatoes (4/1.46)
2 Alexia Frozen Snacks (2/1.58)
1 Post Grain Cereal (30¢)
2 Tena Pads (19¢)
2 Sundown Vitamins (FREE + 1.49 overage)
2 Mt. Olive Pickles (2/79¢)
2 Large bags Chex Mix (2/1.65)
1 Publix Sour Cream (1.29)

The total Publix value of everything that I purchased was 63.56.
The total that I paid after sales and coupons was 6.95 plus tax.
I saved 56.61 or 89%.
However, as I was reviewing my receipt I noticed that one of the Sundown vitamins had rung up at 4.69 when the shelf tag had said 3.52. I took it to the service desk to be reimbursed the 1.17 difference. They checked the shelf and found that I was correct, although the tag should have been removed. Instead of refunding me the 1.17, they refunded me 4.69, the full purchase price, as is their policy. I explained that I would be satisfied with just the 1.17 difference, but she said no. This brought my total spent to 2.26 plus tax. It made my savings 61.30 or 96%. 37.94 of this was coupons!
